BRAKES AND BRAKE REPAIR

FREE BRAKE CHECKS

MOBISKIM provide free brake checks to give a clear picture of the condition of your vehicle’s brakes, and whether you need new brake pads, brake discs or if the braking system itself is in need of repair. For your free brake check call into MOBISKIM, there is no need to book or call us for helpful advice.

BRAKE MAINTENANCE

Brake checks are an important part of vehicle servicing requirements and should be inspected periodically. If you use your car mainly for short journeys it is likely that the brakes will wear down sooner.
The most obvious symptoms indicating that brake pads are in need of changing or repair are:
1) Grinding noise – this usually suggests that the brake pads have reached the minimum thickness and your brake pads require changing.
2) Pull to the left or right when braking – this normally means that there could be sticking on the brake discs or issues with the hydraulic elements of the brakes.
Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services MOBISKIM offers.

BRAKE PAD & SHOE REPLACEMENT

Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your discs or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
We also adjust and repair hand brakes.

MOBILE ON-BOARD DISC SKIMMING

We skim brake discs lightly for all types of motor vehicles to create a flat virgin surface for the new brake pads to bed in properly. We can also skim all type of trucks.
The need for brake skimming arises when the disc or drum surface is not even all around. Skimming involves taking a thin layer of metal of the disc or drum until it is even.
Skimming can only be done if the resultant thickness is still over the manufacturer's required minimum. It may also be that the disc or drum is warped to such an extent that it cannot be repaired by skimming.

BRAKE HOSES

A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurised brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or low brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

BRAKE FLUID FLUSHES

Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. We measure the moisture content of the brake fluid, and flush the entire system swiftly if required.

CALIPER REPLACEMENT

We check brake calipers and replace seals in the pistons if required. We have the correct hydraulic equipment to dislodge seized pistons without damage.
A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, putting lives at risk.

WHEEL BEARINGS

Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. MOBISKIM can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM

Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit MOBISKIM where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

BRAKE PIPE MANUFACTURING

We check for corrosion on steel fluid lines and cracks in rubber hoses and replace these when required. This includes high pressure rubber brake hoses as well as steel brake pipes.
